 early life
Jerry Hardin was born in Dallas on November 20, 1929. His father was a rancher, and Jerry spent his youth actively involved with his local church and performing in school plays. He attended Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas on a scholarship, and went on to study at London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, earning a scholarship there through the Fulbright Program. He spent several years there before returning to the United States to begin acting in New York, performing in regional theatre for twelve years.

Hardin began acting on television in the 1950s, mostly in character roles. He amassed over a hundred appearances by the early 1990s, in addition to over seventy-five theatrical credits by the early 1960s. His television appearances include roles in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek:Voyager and Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Several of Hardin's notable cinematic roles include the films Reds, Tempest and The Firm. The latter of these roles won Hardin the attention of television writer Chris Carter, who cast him in the recurring role of Deep Throat in the series The X-Files.
